    Very clean, warm and polite.. room was on good level up high, it was quiet and fresh. nice views

    Hotel computer/internet did not work so u had to buy wifi time.. also very confusing how you book on website but had to pay when I arrived... I was under the impression Booked.net billed me and charged my credit card?? So I paid twice??

    Wicked centre location. Very friendly an helpful night staff.

    We checked in at 2 o clock. I already previously booked a cot( via phone a week before..) an they said they were getting it ready. We went out for lunch an returned an they said we will bring it up to our room. We went back out an returned to hotel. We eventually got a cot at midnight!! This is totally unacceptable, Awful hotel an service by the day staff.The night reception man said in his 2 years there, he d never seen a cot!!!????? Altough he did get it sorted for us.

    There was a leak - so they gave us an apartment for the same price! yay! ;0)

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Due to a water leak being repaired, the room I had booked was not available, so the hotel gave me an upgrade at no extra charge. The room was comfortable and ideally located for my purposes.

    Internet access good, but the charge a little on the high side ~ free internet access as part of the package would have been preferable.

  • Group of friends
    5.6

    It is situated near most attractions we wanted to visit.

    The service was great but they charged us double than the quote was given. The quote was r500 per room and we were charged r1000 for one night.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The staff were very friendly, we stayed in the apartment, needs a dining table and a new lounge but over all we had a great time

  • Couple
    3.8

    Nothing spectacular, my room was stuffy, small and full of roaches, never again!

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Location in the center of the city, and the helpfulness of the staff. Rooms are clean, and prices are reasonable.
